    I would like to be able to turn on/off the water main to my house remotely. I've considered getting:

    WaterCop Z-Wave Actuator Motor and Shut-Off Valve Leak Prevention
    https://www.thesmartesthouse.com/pr...-and-shut-off-valve-leak-prevention-value-kit

    The largest size option is '1 inch size valve'. I measured the water supply (copper) coming from the ground inside the wall of my house. The circumference is 4 inches, so I suspect the outer diameter is 1 1/4 inches.

    Would my copper supply line fit the 1 inch valve? And if so, would it be connected with a compression fitting or soldering? I could not find any compression fittings that were bigger than an inch in diameter.
